SGI and dual worship?

2021.12.07 17:54 Iriefyire SGI and dual worship?

When my friend was attempting to drag me into SGI, one of my biggest initial hesitations was that I’m Jewish - I’m not extremely observant, but I do hold that basic set of religious beliefs. It actually helped me avoid SGI quickly because Jews are so deeply opposed to the notion of false idols that praying to altars with pictures of “living” humans on them are a really hard no, and at the first meeting I went to there was a picture of Ikeda next to the gohonzon. I’d seen Buddhist altars with photos of gurus, but not a guy in a suit. I privately asked if he was somebody’s ancestor of some kind, maybe we were remembering someone who died (maybe we were) but when it was like NO THAT’S SENSEI I was like…oh this is is a cult…
Anyway, a lot of Jews also practice certain kinds Buddhism. They aren’t mutually exclusive, and one of the reasons I agreed to try SGI in the first place was because I felt like it could supplement the religious practice I already had. It became pretty clear that SGI’s approach to Buddhism doesn’t really involve a lot of actual Buddhism and was not the way to go if I wanted that.
My friend knew that I was Jewish and considered myself to be actively practicing, and it came up in conversation with a few other people when they tried to love-bomb me and had to listen to anything I had to say. Of course for the most part they weren’t particularly interested in my message which was, “Yeah, somebody dragged me here, and I already have a religion and it doesn’t really click with whatever this is.”
I know all religions are cults and some of them have just been around for a long time, so I’m not trying to say my belief system is better or worse than anyone else’s, just explaining the personal experience I came to SGI with.
I’m really curious, what is the SGI strategy or thought on bringing in people who actively practice other religions? My friend’s sell was “you can totally do both” and I feel like SGI’s mindset would be “we’re so much better you’ll abandon your God for Ikeda.”

2021.12.07 17:54 1Ups_Only How can I get a doctors Appointment?

My girlfriend is sick. It's not covid. All signs point to some kind of stomach infection as a result of being exposed to flood waters. She spent 8 hrs at the Bellingham ER and was told to practice mindfulness and give yoga a try. I wish I was joking but I'm not. She drove to an ER in Skagit where she had a full panel of tests run (barring a stool sample) and was given some antibiotics which so far have made no impact on her. We've been calling around looking for a GP but the closest appt we've been able to book is at the end of March. Does anyone have a family DR they care to recommend, or know anyone who's a doc? We're at our wits end here and grasping at straws. She's missed over 2 weeks of work as a result of this and I'm afraid they're going to let her go if she doesn't get well soon. Thanks.

2021.12.07 17:54 ForeignEntertainer Rigorous activity/work/stress BEFORE getting Pfizer?

I'm trying to plan out my calendar and I know that you should plan to rest AFTER getting your COVID vaccine, but what about before getting it?
I will be working as a server at a busy food & drink establishment a day or 2 before getting the vaccine shot. I usually get tired after that job. Would it be okay to still make that appointment date? I made sure I don't work for a few days after the appointment.
It's my initial shot. It's going to be the Pfizer COVID vaccine.
Thanks

2021.12.07 17:54 MattTheMaker4realz Printed some dies for bending steel tubing with a harbor freight tubing roller then made a tall bike with the dies!

Inspired by some press brake tooling I saw I figured this kind of tooling could also be made. I was able to bend 3/4 and 1/2 O.D. steel tubing with a .060 wall thickness with these. Made an instructable with a youtube video embedded in it about the process.

First bend with 3D printed dies. Success!!!

2021.12.07 17:54 lone_ranger42 Ultra budget advice

Hello fellow audio enthusiasts,
I come to you in a time of great need. I am replacing my current speaker setup as I move house, but due to unexpected costs (and the fact that I’m a student) I have to keep my budget way too low for anything over on audiphile. I am in Canada, and have a budget of $400 CAD (~$300 USD) all said and done. I’m not so picky about what sort of setup I’ll end up getting, and have long since given up on any sort of decent surround sound at this budget, but I’d like to get the highest quality sound I can out of whatever I get. I’m mostly going to be using this for movies and music, so versatility is important to me. I’m happy to order any or all of this through amazon.ca or any other reliable online retailer. I’m currently looking at getting a Monoprice 108248 8 inch subwoofer, a pair of Monoprice MP65-RT bookshelf speakers, and a Fosi Audio BT30A receiver. Do any of you fine people see any incompatibilities in my plan, or have better suggestions for any of the components? Thanks
